You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition

Wig’s Word of God Today 2-8-2011

God created man in His image; in the Divine Image He created him; male and female He created them. Genesis 1:27
 
You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition. Mark 7:8

Genesis 1:0-2:4a, Psalm 8:4-5, 6-7, 8-9 & Mark 7:1-13
 
We continue our walk through Genesis and the formation of man, the living creatures and the green plants for food describing how pleased God was with all He created. After six days of work, He rested on the seventh day making it Holy describing in Genesis 2:3, “So God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work he had done in creation.” There comes a time we all must rest from our work for the LORD and rejuvenate our bodies with proper pampering and relaxation. Take the time to bring yourselves back to the surrender Christ calls all of us to give.
 
Jesus describes the traditions of the Jewish peoples and by the Pharisees explaining there are some things they believe they do before eating such as washing their hands that are not as important as following the example of Christ in living. Jesus said, “Well did Isaiah prophesy about you hypocrites, as it is written: ‘This people honors Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me; In vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines human precepts.’ You disregard God’s commandment but cling to human tradition.” He went on to say, “How well you have set aside the commandment of God in order to uphold your tradition!” Mark 7: 6-9 Jesus makes it very clear that human tradition doesn’t outweigh God’s laws.
 
So we ask in prayer: Dear LORD, I pray to give myself completely to You in body, mind and spirit by my actions of following Your Word. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.
 
God Bless,

Romans 8:28
 
Your tradition is Human Not God’s Word Fed
 
The water was filled by His grace
Living creatures of which we can taste
Even the birds of the sky came to prove
Heaven and earth were filled for me and you
 
Animals of every kind began to roam
Filling the earth with more graces shown
In His Image He created a boy and a girl
Dominion was ours by His love to fulfill
 
All of this happened in six days or less
The earth was formed without proper rest
God looked down and found it very good
On Seventh Day He rested as each of us should
 
Washing before meals can’t change your fate
Christ told the Pharisees as they continued to hate
Your lips may honor the things I have said
Your tradition is human not God’s Word fed

About Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

My name is Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins. I first recognize Christ as my Savior in all things. I am married to my best friend and Soul-Mate in Christ, Antonia Cruz-Wiggins. I am a University of Florida graduate of Public Relations, a US Navy Veteran and a Montessori Elementary School Teacher. I love life and God's help of living it! I follow the Light of Christ in everything I do! I love writing poetry about the Lord and I create a new poem from each Scripture I discern in my daily mediations. You can almost follow the poem by looking at the readings for each day. I started sharing this small yet personal scripture study four years ago when one day I was reading the bible and the Holy Spirit moved me to share the verse with a group of about 40 Christian Men in my Emmaus Ministry who get together weekly to celebrate the Lord and talk about His Truth. Since then the number of people I share my study with has grown to over 650. I enjoy an open loving dialog about anything I write and I have strived to write what I know the Lord wants me to share steering clear of offending anyone’s spiritual beliefs because I share my work with people I meet in public when I strike up a conversation about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It took almost 2 years to begin writing what the Holy Spirit leads me to say. I believe that all Christians must unite as One Body of Christ’s Love to accomplish the joy of living with love, honor and respect. I reach out to Humanity to share His Salvation be it Baptist, Catholic, Protestant, Episcopal or any other religion or belief. I seek to mirror His Compassion, His Simpleness, His Charity and His Love. While I am Catholic, I believe we must all unite in the Lord to become One Body in Christ to bring our children back to The Church. I am humbled to share my study with you. Please feel free to comment any time. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is my Joy because I am a Disciple of His Truth. I am honored to share my Bible study with anyone you may recommend. As always, I remain, Yours in Christ, Thomas Joe Cruz-Wiggins

    I cannot wait to read simple things more of this fantastic topic. So much from it Ive never even regarded. You sure did put a new twist on something that Ive heard a great deal of about. I dont believe Ive actually read something that does this subject nearly as good justice as you just did.
